in the middle of his term. remember, he tried, as did a lot of democrats and john mccain to get immigration reform through in 2007. and that's when the backlash grew. and then when the bush administration was deemed a failure, which many of us believed broadly that it was, a lot of conservatives said that's true. and instead of trying to moderate the party then, they said the problem was this compassionate conservative guy was too liberal. so they pulled the party way over to the right. the problem they have now is the tea party folks are the folks who kind of got them there in 2010. and it's as if the republicans are saying well, we needed your votes to drive this car to the country club, but we really don't want to let you inside the country club. so they're courting a kind of class warfare in the republican party over the next couple of years. >> e.j., one of the things i think you have written about more eloquently than anybody else is the idea of -- you've written ambitiously i should say about the idea of civility, that we can have reasonable disagreements about even very profound dif

go ahead. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was senator john mccain grilling his old friend chuck hagel last week at hagel's confirmation hearing. the senate armed services committee was supposed to vote today on hagel's nomination to head the pentagon, but that vote has been postponed after republicans said they hadn't received sufficient information about hagel's financial records and specifically about any payments he's received from foreign sources. that's an odd hurdle given that republicans never seem concerned about foreign revenue sources when it came to nominees from george w. bush. one democratic official working on the hagel nomination told politico, quote, what they're asking is unprecedented, and it's clear that it's information that he's unable to provide. hagel says he can't provide it because it would violate confidentiality of the boards that he serves on. of course, critics say this is about more than incomplete financial records. so why are republicans really holding up hagel's nomination? aaron david miller is vice president for new initiatives at the woodrow w

. >> mike: and hey, chris, nancy pelosis and john mccain on the show today. >> and we sat down with nancy pelosi. and one thing we talked about gun control she's calling for a study and obviously they want bans on guns and things like that. she says let's have a study whether or not this violence out of hollywood creates any violence in the real world and i said do we really need another study? here is a clip. >> why don't you go to your friends in hollywood and challenge them, shame them and say, knock it off? >> i do think whenever we do when you tell them it's evidence-based we have that throughout our proposal. in other words, we don't want to just be anecdotally writing bills. >> so the bottom line was, she was saying, you know, we're going after the gun lobby, but i'm not going to put any pressure on hollywood. >> so she moved not at all on that question he ththen? >> not a bit. >> tucker: nice try, not a bit. chris, we'll be watching. >> thanks a lot. and i say pelosi and mccain. with pelosi, quickly, a lot of talk about sequestration and whether it should be spending cuts or wheth
